TTT is an interdisciplinary and nomadic event, where both practitioners as well as theorists present and discuss the status of art-science and/or art & technology. The TTT conference series is based on the support of its Steering Committee and an informal network of international researchers and practitioners that develop their activities at the edge of art and science intersections. TTT has been hosted in Greece (2016-2017), Mexico (2018), Austria-Online (2020) and will be soon hosted in Malta (2023).
